3. Shikhar Dhawan – INR 7 Crores
He is the opening partner of Rohit Sharma in the limited overs cricket and the duo has provided many memorable opening partnerships for the country.
Moreover he is also the opener in the longer format of the game, and plays ruthless cricket everywhere so much so that on his day, he can single-handedly destroy the entire opposition.
His cheerful attitude can lift the entire team’s spirits. From Grade C contract last year, where he received â‚¹50 lakhs per annum, he was promoted to Grade A+ and now receives â‚¹7 crores per year.
4. Bhuvneshwar Kumar – INR 7 Crores
He is the most complete bowler in the entire Indian team and has raised his game by several notches over the past few years.
Along with his ability to swing the ball in both the directions, he has also increased his pace to over 140 clicks and can constantly ball in that area.
With 181 International wickets in his tally so far, he will surely increase that in the near future. From â‚¹1 crores contract last year, he was promoted to the highest bracket and now receives â‚¹7 crores per annum.
5. Jasprit Bumrah – INR 7 Crores
He is one of the lethal bowlers India has ever produced. With his unorthodox bowling style, he can be brutal in the death overs.
Having trained with Lasith Malinga in Mumbai Indians, he has the perfect mixture of yorkers, slower deliveries and bouncers, which make him one of the toughest bowlers to face.
With an impressive ‘Red Ball’ debut this year, this impressive bowler has been kept in the highest category and is paid â‚¹7 crores per year.
